[ laughter ] i'm ready to sign it. [ applause ] so, my point here today is is to say let's approach this problem with the middle class in mind. the folks who are behind me and the millions of people all across the country who they represent. >> shepard: well, republicans are saying they need some spending cuts. that they will also have to be part of the deal. and they are accusing the president of campaigning instead of negotiating. >> i mean, every week he spends campaigning for his
to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> so there you have it. what do you think about that and what role does that statement by her make in the concern about her qualifications? >> yeah. you know, chris, one of the things that's amplified some of the concerns around this is we had a classified briefing with about 65 or 70 senators on september the 20th, and i assure you if you were there, you would have thought it was most of the one bizarre briefings ever where we had four, you know, distinguished people there who shared like no information. i was in libya about a week after that. it was a preplanned trip. i didn't go there because of benghazi. obviously benghazi was a big topic, and i sat there with our stat

, a zebra and a pony. those are real pictures. welcome to "early start." this was sent to us yesterday. they said this is a serious and true story. i said no way. it is. john berman is hosting "starting point" at 7:00, it's now 5:00 a.m. in the east. first 33 days until we reach the fiscal cliff and things are heating up on capitol hill. tim geithner, the chief fiscal cliff negotiator will meet with congressional leaders in an effort to get talks moving. there's no time to waste because there may be 33 days to get a deal done, but congress breaks for the holiday. that happens in just 15 days. white house correspondent dan lothian is live from washington this morning. dan, that clock is ticking louder and louder what is the very latest? i hear there are one-on-one meetings happening today. >> that's right. these are the president himself not sitting down and talking with lawmakers, but timothy geithner will be on capitol hill and other senior level members of the administration trying to hammer something out here. this is a complicated process. so far it does not appear the two sides ha
the president flatly declared while he wants tax changes now, spending cuts can wait. >> it would give us more time than next year to work together on a comprehensive plan to bring down the deficits. >> white house spokesman jay carney broke new ground declaring today the president does want spending cuts, listed in his budget plan to be included in the fiscal cliff talks. >> hold up the budget and say democrats on capitol hill vote for including the spending cuts in this deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. that is not what they are doing now. should they include those? >> yes. i think that, and i know that democrats accept that this has to be it, a balanced package, that includes revenues and cuts and spending cuts. >> months ago, the budget carney held up was voted down by the entire senate. 99-0. meaning no democratic support. earlier, dick durbin insisted spending cuts from entitlement reform will not be part of the talks while pelosi spell noncommittal whether the cuts will be in the deal. still, the administration is trying to breathe life to the talks, with vice president biden shopping at

. thanks for that sobering news for the rest of us this morning, tahman. >> our teams in arizona and missouri are working right now to find the stores and possibly the winners. we're going to have the very latest on "good morning america." >> sorry for the rest of you folks out there. >> i know. >>> now, to the pineapple express. a string of nasty storms barreling into the west coast. >> the first round of drenching rain and powerful winds already blew in yesterday. and more of the same is on the way today, through sunday. forecasters say it's like opening up a giant fire hose nearly 400 miles wide. that means they're in for a soggy mess from san francisco up to seattle. >> named the pineapple express because it originates in hawaii and moves towards the west coast. for more on the impact and the back-to-back rainmakers, we turn to accuweather.com and jim dickey. >> another round of soaking rainfall on tap for today in across california. there's an upper-level low pressure spinning in. that's drawing in tropical moisture here. san francisco, through portland. into the seattle are
. >> i certainly don't think it was the ideas. i think that the ideas carried the day for us and the success that we had, though it obviously wasn't enough to win the race, was based on the candidate mitt romney and on his ideas. >> the ideas carried the day? what is he talking about? those ideas are why romney came in second place. this election was a rejection of the policies romney stood for. but too many republicans just don't get it. right now we have incredibly important issues to deal with, on tacks, jobs, immigration, marriage equality. but how account country move forward if the gop is still stuck with the ideas of the past? joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and karen finney, msnbc political analyst and former dnc communications director. richard, let me go to you first. i want to talk about this lunch at the white house. it's pretty unlikely we'll ever see mr. romney enjoy joining the obama administration, sbt it? >> based on the readout that we got from that meeting, i would say so. they talked about where there migh

. now's the time for us to work on what we all agree to which is let's keep middle class taxes low. that's what our economy needs. that's what the american people deserve. >> the white house is also turning to social media in a new twitter hash tag to spread his message. >> today, i'm asking congress to listen to the people who sent us here to serve. i'm asking americans all across the country to make your voice heard. tell members of congress what a $2,000 tax hike would mean you to. call your members of congress. write them an e-mail, post it on their facebook walls. you can tweet it using th the #my2k. not y2k, #my2k. >> they showed support for cutting a deal with the president. yesterday the oklahoma republican repeated his belief that congress should start by locking in tax cuts for the middle class. >> in my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people that make less than $250,000. we should just take them out of this discussion right now, continue to fight against any rate increases, continue to try to work honestly for a much bigger deal. >> if the president i
